It does work in South Jersey - Toms River, Jackson & Lakewood - targeting the same aggressive door knocking cohort.

Economic violence or fair business model??

Like telephone intrusions and the like I view this practice as a form of violence--not so much physical, but psychological.

Jersey City Residents Ask For ‘No Knock’ Registry To Hold Developers At Bay

February 16, 2017 7:37 PM

JERSEY CITY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — you’ve probably heard of the ‘do not call’ list, but now some people want a ‘do not knock’ registry.

Many homeowners said they want to silence what they said are constant calls from aggressive developers who want to buy their properties.

Kim Griffin said her family has owned several properties in the Bergen Lafayette neighborhood of Jersey City for more than 50 years. It’s home and they don’t plan to leave despite constant door knocks by developers asking them to sell.

“People have been coming through Gardner Avenue asking, ‘do you want to sell?’ I say, ‘no, I’m not selling, because where will I live,” she told CBS2’s Meg Baker.

JERSEY CITY -- The City Council will consider a "no knock" law aimed at aggressive real estate investors next week, with council members saying today the measure will protect longtime residents.

The ordinance would update the city's anti-solicitation law by including anyone looking to purchase real estate for themselves or for a third party. It would also create a "no knock" registry letting investors know which homes are owned by someone not interested in selling.

Unless there are real teeth behind reporting, enforcement and penalties, this ordinance just won't work. The parties that engage in this behavior don't care a whit about rules, propriety or people's privacy. They are emboldened - and they push and push until they get their way. It's been a growing problem and I'm happy the council is investigating this - as long as residents have a sensible and real-time way of getting redress against offenders.
